To ensure the smooth operation of sensitive network services and applications, the selection of system components is critical. On the server-side we rely on professional 19" hardware. We use components from proven manufacturers such as Intel, Seagate, Sun Microsystems, Dell and Supermicro. As for the operating system, we like to recommend FreeBSD and CentOS, which are free, open source and reliable.
Within the network we deploy switches from Hewlett Packard and routers from Juniper Networks exclusively.
